The flowers are so pretty and I really like the little flowers buds too.
Thanks. When we were children we would pop those buds open which made Mum pretty grumpy. It probably ruined the new flower but as kids it was fun to do:-((
Aren’t they bright and lively?
Your spring is certainly ahead of ours. Looks like you are almost on summertime 🙂
I need to check back on photos taken last year to see when things were flowering. It has been very, very strange having such a warm winter but it could all change tomorrow with snow forecast on the Rimutakas:-(
Snow coming this way too, I believe!
That is what I have heard too…Yikes! Cold conditions is normal weather for August but it has been so warm here we will not be happy.
The beautiful blossom on my nectarine tree will be demolished; well, maybe. The weather forecast can be wrong!
The Magnolia is looking mangled after the southerly blew up in the night:-(
After a better look some of the higher buds and flowers are not looking too bad. How are your nectarine blossoms faring?
They have come through the rain quite brilliantly. I am amazed.
No orange here YET! Outside of my flowers. When it starts to appear my flowers will be frozen.
Frozen flowers does sound wrong Linda. You must have tough flowers in Colorado.
Orange is such a cheerful colour; nice to see these flowers; thank you Lynley.
Thanks Juliet. The Calendula were particularly vibrant – such a useful healing plant.
